The coastal shovelhead split from its ancestor the dark giant shovelhead. It has shrunk to half its ancestors size and now feeds in the coastal regions at the northern part of Wright. Like its ancestors it has a paddle tail and 2 paddle flipper to propel itself while its mouth sits wide open eating whatever can fit inside. It particularly likes floating flora such as the arctic seaflower and diamiboard. Now that it is back in the sunlight its dormant genes for photosynthesis have returned and it can absorb sunlight on its dark green back. This also helps keep it more active during he day. Its 3 eyes have also adapted to seeing in the bright light of the coastal waters. They will breed in the summer and travel in pod with their babies. This protects offspring from getting eaten by predators. They also have a thick plated skin which help protect its if predators try to bite them.
